Florida gray Ibis.

The Florida gray Ibis in its wet,marshy habitat.

It consumes the smallest sea animals, mollusks, and sea grasses.
In turn, larger predators like snakes and alligators occasionally find sustenance in consuming the Ibis. In the early 1900’s, Florida women leaders like Ivy Stranahan led the fight in stopping the hunting of water birds solely for their plumes, making it a criminal offense.
